What alternatives should I consider to a used Mini Hatchback hatchback?
The Ford Fiesta is the benchmark for small cars, being great to drive, with a good driving position and an intuitive dashboard and interior layout. It’s practical, has some great engines and is relatively cheap to buy and to run. Its steering is sharp and it has long been the best-handling car in the class.
The Seat Ibiza has always been an impressive car, but the latest version gives even the class-leading Fiesta a run for its money. It’s superb to drive and is more spacious and practical than the Ford. It’s got a great infotainment system too. It should be even cheaper to buy used than the Fiesta, although at the time of writing it’s a relatively new car and so there might not be so many examples on the used market.
